Hosted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 8 Indoor Air Quality and Children’s Environmental Health Programs.

Whether you live in an apartment, townhome or single family home, an old home or are building a new home, there are many ways to protect and improve your indoor air quality. In recognition of Healthy Homes Month, you’re invited to join us for a webinar to learn about our health connection to homes and buildings, as well as tips and tools to keep indoor environments safe and healthy. EPA will discuss common indoor pollutants and what residents and building managers can do about them. Representatives from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Region 8 will share information and resources that highlight the importance of home maintenance and the connection between your internal environment and your health. Participants will also learn about a successful asthma home visit program in the Denver area.

Please note: This webinar will not focus on preventing the spread of viruses indoors, but instead will highlight the importance of healthy home environments, as we all adjust to spending more time in our homes.

Attendees of the webinar are encouraged to take action to maintain and improve the health of their homes and buildings using the resources highlighted throughout the presentations.
